Software Engineer - Digital Humans

1 month agoRemote

Reality Labs Research (RL-R) brings together a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers to create the future of augmented and virtual reality. Our team experiments with bold ideas to create the next generation of digital humans and avatars.We cultivate an honest and considerate environment where self-motivated individuals thrive. We encourage a strong sense of ownership and embrace the ambiguity that comes with working on the frontiers of research. As a Software Engineer in the Digital Humans team, you will foster our scientific explorations in areas like human shape, motion/appearance capture, biophysical models, simulation and rendering. You will generate viable paths to the consumer products that will connect people in a meaningful way for decades to come.Together, let's step into the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real, and change the world.

Software Engineer - Digital Humans Responsibilities:
  • Work side by side with research scientists to foster scientific explorations to produce realistic and stylized avatars
  • Build tools, platforms, infrastructure and documentation that enable more efficient and effective research
  • Make the architectural tradeoffs required to rapidly deliver software solutions
  • Write clean readable code, debug complex problems that span systems, understand priorities and fulfill project needs efficiently
  • Learn constantly, build with inclusion as a core value, dive into new areas with unfamiliar technologies, and embrace the ambiguity of AR/VR problem solving
